Scrolling down one would find page after page of "Still no word on ___?" and "You are avoiding questions on ___" and "Why did you tell us the same thing you told us last time."
In order for this to work we need answers to questions -- not the same vague answers to the same 20 questions every month. If the devs can't give us a concrete answer besides "Well we are working on it and it will be awesome!" or "soon!" that question should not be selected for answering.
Ask Cryptic should not be a tool for generating buzz, Cryptic generates enough buzz with blog posts and twitter. Ask Cryptic should give real concrete answers to questions asked by the playerbase.
I can pretty much agree on this. It's frustrating when questions get avoided/ignored and the ones that are chose to answer are pretty much the same ones every month. I do appreciate Ask Cryptic don't get me wrong, but when there's something I don't understand, I inquire.
